If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a community organizer as soon as possible via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, community organizers are available to help community members engage with local law enforcement or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behavior feel safe. In the context of in-person events, organizers will also provide escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.
If you feel that you are unsafe in an emergency situation, contact 911. For non-emergencies, the Burlington Police Department can be reached at (802) 658-2704.
If you are a witness to behavior that violates this Code of Conduct, we recommend you take the following actions:
